Bridges didn't do a whole more besides score, but his defensive contributions helped round out his final line nicely. The rookie has back-to-back double-digit scoring contributions after a two-game downturn in late March, and he should continue logging starts for what remains of the regular season now that Kelly Oubre, Jr. (thumb) is done for the campaign.
Bridges was back in double digits after a pair of clunkers over the last two games. The rookie had shot just 1-for-11 while averaging 2.5 points against the Jazz and Wizards in those contests, but Saturday's bump in usage helped bring about a much more serviceable return. Bridges figures to continue drawing starts at small forward for what remains of the season with Kelly Oubre, Jr. (thumb) and he finished March with averages of 8.1 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.7 steals across 32.3 minutes.
Bridges tallied just four points, five assists, four rebounds, and two steals in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 124-121 loss to the Wizards.
Bridges has been a disaster on offense over the past two games, scoring a combined five points despite playing in excess of 30 minutes in each contest. Owners who streamed him in for their championship week were hopefully only looking for steals as he has offered basically nothing in the other categories. The Suns next game is against the Grizzlies on Saturday and Bridges will hopefully look to be more aggressive on the offensive end of the floor.
Bridges turned in a dud on Monday, failing to connect on any of his shot attempts from the floor and totaling just one point and three boards. Bridges got his fourth consecutive start and once again played over 30 minutes, and his poor outing shouldn't be taken too seriously as no Sun scored in double-digits or made much of an impact other than Devin Booker. In three prior starts, Bridges averaged a respectable 12.0 points, 3.7 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 1.3 steals in 38.3 minutes. He'll have a good chance to get back on track Wednesday when the Suns face the Wizards.
Bridges turned in 11 points (5-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists and three steals across 34 minutes in Saturday's 112-103 loss to the Kings.
Bridges has done respectable work in place of Kelly Oubre (thumb) in the starting lineup. While his rookie campaign was a bit of a mixed bag, the Villanova product shows a lot of promise despite fighting through a crowded depth chart. He'll continue to play a key role while the Suns battle the injury bug.
